In the annual White Bear Lake office Chili Cook-Off where winners are typically chosen in both red and white bean categories, this year’s entries were primarily red and robust – except for one, so a decision was made to judge all the chili recipes together.  Please join us in congratulating affiliated agent Diana Evans, 2019 Chili Cook-off Champion, whose only white bean chili entry took first place!

Also in hot pursuit of the top prize was Matthew Harmertime’s chili, which took second place. The competition was so stiff that agents Wendi Wright and Erik Hermann tied for third. However, Wendi finally took her rightful place on the podium when Erik fessed up to his wife having actually made his chili. Once the judges overcame their shock, it was suggested that Coldwell Banker Burnet might do well to recruit Erik’s wife …

Congrats to all who won and participated in making hot chili during this cold season! To those who went home empty-handed, there’s always next year!
